Located 20 minutes from downtown Phoenix, Camelback Mountain is a Phoenix icon visited by thousands every year. Trailheads are accessible from Tatum Blvd and McDonald on the north side, or 64th St and Cholla Ln on the east side of the mountain. Two Summit trails are very strenuous and steep, but easier hikes can be found around the base of the mountain.
The mountain's Echo Canyon Trailhead, Summit Trail and parking area at Echo Canyon will be closed from Jan. 28 through fall 2013 for a major improvement project. The Cholla trailhead on the east side of the mountain will remain open.
